Tell me, one who knows more about Argentina than I do, why is that Pekerman and Bielsa (after WC) don't and/or didn't pick Samuel.
Don't get me wrong, I like Samuel for his Newell's routes, but for Argentina...he's been utter crap.
Also, I'm not saying Ayala is the best defender in the whole wide world, I'm saying in terms of consistency....he's been better than the others except for his spell @ Milan (where he was just above average).
God Hamed, please give these kids a lesson.
